Winter 2017 edition new


The Sheepwash Chronicle is a magazine for and about the residents of the little village of Sheepwash in Devon.

Our Village Hall

The Village Hall is available for all sorts of functions. There is a fully-equipped kitchen with plenty of china

and cutlery.

The hall is well heated during the winter months.

The venue is not too large – it can accommodate about 70 people seated – which is usually adequate for

most events. There is room for a small music group or disco.

The Hall is an excellent venue for birthday parties, Christmas parties, New Years Eve, fundraising events for

your favourite charity, or even a very large family dinner party - the list of options extends as far as your

imagination. You can also extend your event into the Jubilee Park behind the Village Hall, which has proved

very popular for entertainment and wedding venues with marquees.

We can obtain a licence for you if you wish to sell alcohol – this costs £21.00. Wine and beer is available to

purchase from the Village Shop at a very reasonable price, and sale or return can usually be arranged. Draft

beer can be purchased from Holsworthy Brewery, who will deliver and collect barrels.

Do you feel able to run a craft group, or a flower arranging session? What about a gardening club, or a

ladies group? Most things are possible.

There is a regular skittles session on Thursday evenings, there are table top sales on the third Saturday of

every month, and a Village Lunch about four times a year. Come and join in!

This is your Village Hall – use it if at all possible.


HOURLY - 1 to 3 hours - £8 per hour

SESSION – 3 or more hours - £25 per session

Use of the kitchen is free of charge for teas/coffees and £5 per session for full use,

All charges include heating and electricity.


Please call Anne Gray on 01409 231231.

Please settle your fees in advance if possible.

When booking, please advise if alcohol is to be served, and whether a license is required, and if there is to

be entertainment at your event.

Please read and sign the Conditions of Hire when paying/ collecting your key.

Thank you for booking the Village Hall.

Making Money From Used Stamps

Even in this electronic era of emails and texts, we all still receive letters, many of which have stamps on

the envelope. These stamps are still valuable, even though you can’t re-use them to post another letter

– philatelists all over the world are keen to collect them.

There is a box in the community shop where you can deposit your used stamps. All stamps deposited

there will help raise funds for the Children’s Hospice South West.

So please save all your used stamps, and drop them into the box next time you’re in the shop. All

contributions will be very gratefully received, and this simple act can achieve a lot of good!
